Specialty Museum Museum
Gain a new appreciation for uncanny automation at Musée des Automates, a museum featuring about 250 automatic puppets, nearly all created in the site's workshop. Don't be alarmed when these puppets start moving--they are designed to. The owner of the museum creates each item in a workshop, which you can usually tour if you ask. Explore seven rooms of animated puppets and objects made of metal, wood, and paper dating from the 19th century. Put Musée des Automates into our Limoux vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Amazing Automatons in a museum run by passionate and real artists. Everything is so beautiful! A moment of magic and a return to childhood. Enjoy a timeless moment...

  • The Museum is not bad and he welcomed the work done by the artists. these controllers are very pretty, the costumes are superb. However, I regret personally:-the absence of a legend in the represented scenes (we don't always know what characters make reference) - the relative simplicity of mechanisms (I wish I be surprised by more originality), there are here simple movements of rods operated by engines. It's very pretty, but quite repetitive. Fortunately there are costumes. -maintenance that leaves to be desired. If you're in the area, feel free to make a hook with children will look different from mine, more down-to-Earth. Very friendly staff, excellent explanation also.

  • A beautiful spot with a mixture of fantasy and fear. The work provides is beautiful and the implementation of works is made in a very beautiful setting. You can even visit the workshop of creators and inquire with them about their work. In short, really visit top that I recommend to all! Only "downside", I would have appreciated that the place is bigger so it's beautiful but the time spent on each controller, I understand that there are "only" 100
